WASHINGTON (AP) — Senior Republicans are pushing for votes in Congress to block the Obama administration from waiving some provisions of the nation’s landmark welfare-to-work law.
House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp of Michigan and Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said Tuesday they plan to use a special procedure to force a simple majority vote in the Senate, where most legislation requires 60 votes.
